How to change the profession in 40
By the age of 40 people often manage to make a career, his life becomes orderly and stable. But at the same time, there can also be found well-founded reasons that make it necessary to radically change the profession. Such changes can be driven by deep dissatisfaction with real work, reduction of the workplace, and also some personal reasons.
If you decide to change a profession in adulthood, try to observe some rules. First, do not make a decision under the influence of a negative moment. Did you quarrel with a colleague? Have you been deprived of the prize? You do not need to slam the door demonstratively and go into obscurity. Keep your old workplace until you have a clear plan of action.
Formulate your desires. Excellent, if your skills allow you to move into an adjacent profession or industry. For example, a manager can start a business, a musician - teach vocals, a military man - head a security agency, an IT specialist - develop websites. Much more difficult if you want to radically change the scope of activities. In this case it is important to soberly assess their abilities, skills and strengths.
Begin to prepare for a new profession. Learn, upgrade your skills, improve your skills. Do it better while you are still working in the old profession. Go for evening or Sunday courses of retraining, trainings, do self-education.
Find an opportunity to practice in a new profession. The availability of practical experience in finding a job in adulthood is taken for granted. If you do not want to shock the new employers, take care of the internship and at least work a little in the new profession.
Stop being afraid. If you are well prepared, you will be a fully competitive specialist, and you should not be afraid to leave your place of violence. Beware of the fact that you will do meaningless work for the rest of your life and receive a miserable salary.
